In this edited volume, a diverse group of scholars present and discuss challenging cases in the field of pediatric research ethics. After years of debate and controversy, fundamental questions about the morality of pediatric research persist: Is it ever permissible to use a child as a means to an end? How much authority should parents have over decisions about research that involves young children? What should be the role of the older child in decisions about research participation? How do the dynamics of hope and desperation influence decisions about research involving dying children? Should children or their parents be paid for participation in research? What about economic incentives for doctors, researchers and the pharmaceutical industry? Most importantly, how can the twin goals of access to the benefits of clinical research and protection from research risk be reconciled? Following an introductory overview by editor Eric David Kodish, the book is divided into three sections of case studies: Research Involving Healthy Children, Research Involving At Risk Children, and Research Involving Children with Serious Illness. Each case raises compelling ethical issues, and the analysis presented in each chapter illuminate the challenges posed across a wide spectrum of both research protocols and stories of individual case-based approach, this book provides a balanced and through account of the enduring dilemmas that arise when children become research subjects.

"The 18 cases selected demonstrate a remarkable range of clinical scenarios and ethical difficulties involving participants from the maternal/fetal dyad to neonate, young child, and adolescent." --IRB: Ethical and Human Research "The book achieves its ambitious stated purpose: a test for students of medical and research ethics; a handbook for members of institutional review boards, pediatric investigators, and government officials; a resource for clinicians whose patients and their parents may ask about clinical trials; and a guide for parents and children thinking about taking part in clinical research." --The Lancet "This is an excellent resource for individuals conducting and reviewing research involving children. As there are so few publications addressing the ethics of research with children, this book will be a welcome addition to researchers, students of bioethics, ethics committees, and IRB members and staff." --Doody's "The practical aspects of this book are its strength; its case-based approach will be most useful for researchers struggling with the ethical dilemmas raised by their investigations...This book will help researchers whose work involves children to navigate the ethical challenges of their investigations, and it will remind bioethicists of the practical concerns of researchers."--The New England Journal of Medicine "Ethics and Research with Children: A Case-Based Approach is a primary text for anyone conducting pediatric clinical research. The case-absed approach illuminates the practical details behind each chapter's recommendations and conclusions."--Journal of Clinical Research Best Practices "The 18 cases selected demonstrate a remarkable range of clinical scenarios and ethical difficulties involving participants from the maternal/fetal dyad to neonate, young child, and adolescent." --IRB: Ethical and Human Research "The book achieves its ambitious stated purpose: a test for students of medical and research ethics; a handbook for members of institutional review boards, pediatric investigators, and government officials; a resource for clinicians whose patients and their parents may ask about clinical trials; and a guide for parents and children thinking about taking part in clinical research." --The Lancet "This is an excellent resource for individuals conducting and reviewing research involving children.
